Sounds like you have changed the theme settings. To change the theme in Vista

  1. right click on the desktop
  2. click personalize
  3. select theme
To change the theme in XP
  1. right click on the desktop
  2. click properties
you well be presented with the dispaly properties box
the first tab is themes, click the drop down arrow and select a theme. That should change the whole appearence of you computer , including the colour of the taskbar.

Let me know how you made out, and don't forget to rate my answer.
Thanks and good luck.

Kim Drader,

Below are steps to resolve your scroll bar issue.

Instructions

  • Restart your computer Sometimes, a simple restart can bring back the scroll bar to its original form.

  • Right-click anywhere on your desktopicon1.png. Click on "Properties" if you are using Windows XP. Select "Personalize" if you use Windows Vista or Windows 7 and click on "Windows Color and Appearance." Then click on "Open classic appearance properties for more color options."


  • Click on the "Advanced" button.

  • Click on the "Item" drop-down menu. Select "Scroll bar."

  • Change the width by entering "17" under the "Size" category. 17 is the default scroll bar width for Windows operating system

  • Click on "OK" and select "Apply" to end task.

    I HAVE A WINDOW XP HOME EDITION AND WHEN I START MY COMPUTER THE ONLY THING THAT COMES UP IS THE BACKGROUND. THERE ARE NO ICONS OR A BAR AT BOTTOM OF SCREEN.


    the icons and the bar(task bar) at the bottom of the screen are enabled by the explorer.exe file

    it starts automatically but in your case it is not starting

    to start it when your computer starts and comes at the desktop, press alt+ctrl+delete button at the same time to bring up the task manager

    when you do this a task manager shows up in a window

    in task manager window click on file, it will be located on the top left portion on task manager

    now click on "new task(run)"

    this opens another window, in that window type
    "explorer"
    without the quotes "" and press enter
    this will bring you icons and task bar at the bottom of the screen

    Slow


    Hold down the CTRL ALT and DEL buttons and that would pull up the task manager. You can see in there what is running and turn it off temporarily but there is a better way.

    Once you do that, you can click on the start button and click on RUN. In that box type in MSCONFIG and press enter that will bring you into the system configuation utility. Click on the startup tab and everything in the list with a checkmark besides it loads up when you boot up into windows. You uncheck any box you want and it will keep those programs from loading up when you turn on the computer.

    After you uncheck what you want, then click on APPLY and then OK and let the computer restart and it should run a bit faster.

    Try these out and it should speed up your computer and it will be easier to do things.

    I have an acer t671 tower. it recognises a speaker but the sound does not come out


    your sound drivers may not be correct.
    Do you have a volume icon in your task bar.
    If not then go to control panel then sounds and audio device.See in there if you have the option to show icon in task bar.If the colour is faded and you can't change the options then it probably is a sound driver problem So you will need to reinstall your driver

    ok sometimes this happen and the bottom bar of the screen disappears with the destop icons so go to task manager by clicking Ctrl+Alt+Delete and click on 'New Task' and type in 'explorer.exe' and it should come up. You should do this everytime when you start your computer if the icon disappears everytime.

    Dear Sirs I have just insalled the SimpleCenter media but I do not want the icon to automatically load onto the task bar on the right hand side,although I would like the shortcut to remain. I can delete...


    Hello,

    You cannot delete the icon from the task bar as it only displays the start up programs running on the computer. I have given the steps below.

    Click start, than click run. In this box type "msconfig" without quotes.
    You will see the list of startup programs. Uncheck the ones related to the Simple center Media.
    Click Aply, Than click close, than click Restart computer now.

    The program will not load automatically and you would not see the icon in the taskbar.

    I am sure this will help. Please update me on the same.

    Regards,
    Sammy
    On Top of the window click startup
